In an interview with DJ Sbu, Black Coffee admitted that the collaboration with Canadian rapper Drake has opened more doors for him
“Drake remix has been so overwhelming and I am now going to be working on a remix with John Legend,” he said.
It seems like American artist, Usher, came to his senses after Black Coffee revealed that the artist approached him again, asking if they could work together.
Earlier this week, Black Coffee told Metro FM that he was so close to working with Usher but the singer changed his mind at the last minute, saying that the DJ’s track isn’t ‘African’ enough.
“While I was in New York, I met up with Usher’s manager. Obviously he’s like let’s work, we love the African vibe,” he said.
The next day, Usher’s manager contacted the DJ and said that the song Black Coffee sent wasn’t ‘African’ enough.
“The following day the manager called and said, ‘no he [Usher] thinks the song is a bit too modern, he wanted something ‘African’ and I was like [well] maybe not.”
